I upgraded from ME to XP a few months ago and found everything going great. Then I made a few changes to the opening menu. Now when I turn my computer on Wndows XP COMES ON WITHOUT ANY OF THE ICONS and after almost two minutes the icons appear! It has become even slower than Wjndows 95 to load! Any ideas?

This is some crazy bug with XP pro; I believe it only affects the early corporate edition release. Not quite sure what causes it or how to fix it, though.

Try System Restore.

If you are having difficulty with a slow bootup in XP download and run bootVis.exe It is a boot optimizer and got my boot time to around 55 seconds. You may also want to get ntregopt to optimize your registry. Both are free.

I have XP Pro & there is no slowness in booting up. I have a new Dell 2350 Dimension. Perhaps that may make a difference.

I am not certain what you changed but it must have been somewhere in the operating system of your computer. First choice is try a restore. Do some housekeeping by cleaning up your files of junk which causes many, many problems. Also check to see if your hard disk is fragmented. If you have over 10% of a fragmented disk, your system will become sluggish because your drive has to work much harder in seeking the necessary files to run a program. These files are scattered all over the disk. It is also hard on the drive and it will wear out much sooner. You can actually hear the drive going through a lot of motion accessing information. There's more. What does your system tray look like. Are there many icons there? If there is, you have many programs trying to start up when you reach the desktop, it will cause slowness and even freezeups. Having enough RAM on your computer is important as well as the operating speed. There are so many factors to consider.

I am using windows XP Professional Version. I don't know what has happened but I cannot send email messages anymore. They go into a place called outbox on my computer. If I click on the messages and go up to where it says send emails it shows they are going but if I send them to myself I do not get them. Any one that can help, I sure would thank you.
